Completed:: Beachy Wedding Dress

back1 copy

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the progress of the wedding dress I was working on. It’s finally completed! I could not be happier with the result. I really enjoyed sewing this dress, perhaps this is the kind of style of dress that I would actually wear if I were to get married again. This dress is quite comfortable to wear as well, with a built-in bra, small cap sleeves for extra support and light weight chiffon and silk satin skirt. beachy wedding dress front and back close up beachy wedding dress

Attaching the lace at the chiffon hem was the most time consuming part of making this dress. I hand stitched about 13 meters of lace! I could not use a sewing machine for fear of the chiffon puckering. It took about 10 hours just attaching the lace alone!

The dress has a sweep length train. Small pearl button and a loop were added in the center back, so the train can be shortened for reception.

Simple is the Best

I recently participated in a portfolio shoot for a model named, Ami. She wanted something simple and relaxed, so I styled up the bat sleeve sweater, black sheer top, faux leather peplum top and cream color sweater. I’m enjoying the minimalist trend, as you can see it from the dress I made recently.

Some recent pins from my “Baby” board on Pinterest.  I need to rename it to “Kids” or something, as Kiko grows up, I am pinning more and more toddler stuff these days. I love these little girl’s outfits. So sassy and chic. Because of the amount of time Kiko spends with Andy, she is always in sweatpants and t-shirts, but I am making her a pink coat that matches with mine. Can’t wait to share the progress of the coat!
